campaign. president obama and his republican challenger, mitt romney, both favor expanding charter schools, support standardized tests and want more accountability from teachers and principals. but the two men have significant disagreements. >> i think some of the main differences between governor romney and president obama when it comes to education come in the area of school choice. governor romney sees a really robust rule for school choice and school improvement whereas president obama like a lot of democrats has been skeptical of vouchers. >> reporter: romney supports taking federal dollars for educating special needs and low income families, known as title i funds and giving them directly to parents in the form of vouchers. although romney avoids using that word. >> for the first time in history federal education funds will be linked to the student so that parents can send their child to any public or charter school of their choice. >> reporter: the obama administration is staunchly opposed. why not expand vouchers? why not give parents more choices? >> the goal can't be to remove on

have agreement. both of us think it was wrong for president obama to snubbed the prime minister of israel. >> i do not know what his schedule is. you characterized -- rhetoric about snubbing, been weak, i do not know what the situation was for the president's office, his schedule, what the israeli prime minister's schedule was. if it is possible, you should always meet with foreign heads of government you so what scheduling conference the think would be sufficient? he declined requests from the prime minister to meet when the prime minister was in new york. my understanding is that during that same week he went on david letterman and "the view." >> at the same time? you are using that as an excuse? >> we do not even know. you do not even know. the slander our president and not the -- even know his schedule. >> i am describing his conduct. >> i do not know david letterman's personal schedule or the president's, but we have come to the bottom of a half- hour. much more in the next 30 minutes. >> thank you. a spirited, sometimes fiery debate between our two than senate candidates.
speaking with students and looking at how both president obama and mitt romney have their plans to help the middle class pay for college work. here's her report. >> reporter: when jackie graduated from brown university this year, she put off going straight to medical school. instead, she took a research job at sloan kettering hospital. >> it is nice to have a paying job where i can pay back part of my student loans before going to med school and possibly adding on a lot more. >> reporter: and she had plenty of them, $100,000 worth. why? her family is middle class. her mother works in a school, her dad owns a bar. she says they're considered too wealthy to qualify for many grants but not wealthy enough to have saved the money for the more than $50,000 a year to attend brown. >> you're in the middle class, you are normal suburban family but you don't make an outrageous amount of money, so you can't pay these outrageous prices for tuition. >> reporter: she's not alone. student loan debt hit $1 trillion last year. even tuition for public four-year colleges rose 68% over the last decade. ent
recently both nationally and in swing states, you know this poll looks like a lot of others. obama has advantages over romney on the economy and a range of issues. one thing that stood out in the poll is that a lot of voters didn't like how obama's handling the situation in libya. and the romney campaign sort of sees that as well which is why you see them hitting obama so hard on this lately. but there is still a problem here for romney. this is why the debates are so important. romney wants to change the fundamental structure of this race with this debate coming up next wednesday. remember, over 50 million people watched the first presidential debate in 2008. this is going to be a big moment coming up next week, fred, for mitt romney. >> well, let's shift to the u.s. senate and how pivotal any race could be. the democrats have a six-seat majority, but they're defending 23 seats in the election, with republicans defending just 10. so what would give the republicans a pretty good shot at seizing a 51-seat majority, but they also have a big problem and that is that race in missouri. >> y
you played with mitt romney in colorado, president obama on sunday night in las vegas, both basically what they both said is the media wants this to be a back and forth brawl, we're going to be serious and focus on the issues because they understand that when it comes to undecided voters, tend to be people, not always, politically independent. those kind of people don't like the nastiness, the back and forth. partisans love that. but independents don't like it. the messaging is i'm a serious person, these are serious times, and we need someone who has the ability, capacity, demonstrated record to lead. so i actually think both of them will be kind of the serious and sober politician as opposed to you showed the clip of scott brown and elizabeth warren, i don't think that's what's going to happen tomorrow night. >> mark, we've seen a lot of evidence so far and see more when we go through the numbers tonight in the nbc news "wall street journal" poll the final numbers when they come out how important do you think the 47% comment is? because we've seen a real shift with mitt romney tryin

do you bring to the table? >> guest: well, how about truth for starters. the notion that both obama and romney are arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion in this country on how we slash medicare spending because if we don't, um, i believe that we're going to find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapse as a result of continuing to borrow and spend money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar that we spend. >> host: so what are you seeing out there on that particular issue? what's your prescription, pardon the expression. >> guest: well, i oversaw the reform of medicaid in new mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we took it from a fee-for-service model to a managed care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, we set up better health care networks for the poor in new mexico. i believe if the federal government would have block granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, done away with all the strings and the mandates that i could have effectively overseen the delivery of health care to t
, of course, the election. both president obama and governor romney are seasoned debaters and experts say neither are prone to making major gaffes. but if there is one thing that history has taught us when it comes to presidential debates, expect the unexpected. anderson cooper. >> until this week it has been a rough presidential election to be sure. now the candidates can't stop complimenting each other's debating skills. while they try to lower expectations, one of mitt romney's supporters is predicting a big might for the republican. turn an entrepreneur's dream... ♪ into a scooter that talks to the cloud? ♪ or make 70,000 trades a second... ♪ reach one customer at a time? ♪ how do you help doctors turn billions of bytes of shared information... ♪ into a fifth anniversary of remission? ♪ or turn 30-million artifacts... ♪ into a high-tech masterpiece? ♪ whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology and services to help you solve it. up high! ok. don't you have any usefull apps on that thing? who do you think i am, quicken loans? ♪ at quicken loans, our amaz
, the notion that both obama and romney are arguing over who is going to spend more money on medicare when we need to have a raging debate and discussion on how we/medicare spending. i believe we will find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapse as a result of borrowing and spending money to the tune of 43 cents of every dollar that we have spent. >> what is your prescription? >> we took it from a fee-for-service model to a managed care model and hundreds of millions of dollars were saved, i believe, if the federal government would have block printed the state of new mexico 43% less money, done away with all of the strings in the mandate, that i could have effectively overseeing the delivery of health care to the poor. i think you apply that same template to medicare and give the federal government out of the health care business completely, give it to the states, in this case, block grants that balance expenditures, and that is how we are going to get out of it. giving it up to the states, 50 laboratories of innovation and best practices, that's exactly what we will have. fabulous succ
riesirita simon. >>> president barack obama and mitt romney square off wednesday night in denver. both trying to lower expectations practically gushing over one another, but new jersey governor chris christie is going against the grain and setting the bar high for the republican nominee. >>er time mitt romney has been confronted in this campaign with one of these moments, he has come through in a debate and performed extraordinarily well laying out his vision very clearly and also contrasting himself with his vision with hoomp his opponent was at that time. so i have absolute confidence when we get to thursday morning, george, you'll be shaking your head saying it's a brand new race with 33 dap days to go. >> you almost never hear that. doing well in a debate. what on earth was chris christie doing? live from washington in an undisclosed location at the bureau, peter what was chris christie doing there? >> i have no idea, john. do you? this flies in the face of everything the romney campaign's been trying to do for the last few week. his senior adviser beth myers put out something sayi
for this and then we will find out what is in it. so it's both sides doing that. i am a reagan republican. i did vote for obama and i'm embarrassed with our president on many levels. i'm hoping to have romney bring this country back to where it needs to be. my question for the debate was what did obama right about at harvard? we don't have access to newspapers. he always talked about being transparent. i would like to hear what he was writing about and harvard. host: on facebook -- and you can read more on our facebook page. jeffrey in michigan on the democratic line. caller: good morning. thanks for letting me talk on c- span. i don't plan on watching the debate, because it's going to be the same old thing over and over again. i am fairly well-informed. you've got so many people that are uninformed and they call in to c-span. they give us such a great opportunity to speak and then get such ignorant people calling in. i listen, i read, and i inform myself. obama is not really doing anything as far as i can see. i don't blame him for the jobs and that kind of stuff. what i don't like about him is he i
. >> well, basically, you know, we're just disappointed that governor romney and president obama haven't addressed gun violence in a concrete, specific way. and so basically we're demanding a plan from both of them. in advance of a presidential election, and presidential debate in denver, and asking that they put forth something specific, aside from just platitudes and moments of silence, and actually get down to the business of preventing that violence. >> how likely do you think it is, i mean ron has covered more -- more presidential debates than the rest of us. >> you know, this issue i think has been shelved by a myth. and the myth is since al gore lost in 2000 that gun control is overwhelmingly been rejected by the country. in fact the country is very closely divided. almost exactly in half. support has diminished since bill clinton was in august and was making the case for it. you contrast columbine when there was enormous white house focus and national conversation after those shootings to what happened here where there is the silence. democrats in particular have been intimidat
enemies. they both can -- romney can get wrangled and discombob beau lated and obama can be too pro lix, pro fe sore yal, i could go on. >> how very pro lix of you. >> and he could be he could seem smug and can seem dismissive and so in that open forum there, you're going to see interesting dynamics and it's why there's a lot of why as you put it pro fa lattic efforts that go with diddle earlier. >> and pro lix. >> plenty of sparks in this debate. >> but i also think too, let's not forget that the people that he has to win, for example, women, aren't really wanting zingers. they hate his policies. and that's problematic. when you're going into a debate with a bunch of sort of -- let's say nonwomen friendly not enjoying the prophylactics that is problematic. >> we have to go to break. the fact that time, that 15 minutes, allows for a fairly robust back and forth between the candidates and perhaps the discussion of some actual policy specifics which could be debate crip toe nick. coming up babies have been -- this is following a line. babies have always been a part of political campaigns
, that is the foundation for balancing our budget. it is way too easy to demagogue this. i have listened to obama and romney who have both demagogued and misrepresented the facts. i do not regard people getting government benefits as moochers. if we do not address it, it will not be long before we are greece. >> the government has to honor its commitments. we need to honor commitments we made our seniors, and that is why i say, let me be clear, no one over the age of 40 should see their benefits cut or their taxes increase. promises were made by government and promises need to be kept. we need to make sure that all happens, and i believe there is bipartisan support to do that. nobody is going to watch social security fail. >> the promises were made to secure the votes of people over 65. since world war ii we have been doing it. it is a $60 trillion unfunded liability, and are we going to solve the problem? will we ignore it? and if we ignore it, god help the united states of america. >> recently at the national convention, republicans called for a constitutional amendment banning all abortions wi
is about primer about policy, primary about personal characteristics or some sort of mix of both. we track major politicians mentioned so we can tell you how often obama is mentioned in acts that are not in the presidential race and how often is mentioned favorably versus unfavorably. we look at whether or not ads mention party affiliation, magic words, a host of additional characteristics. and because we're also analyzing the e.u., not just the reports come we are also now starting in 2010 we started to look at musical characteristics, voiceovers and other emotional appeals. reels of access to the full range of the wisconsin advertising database, and so that is what the leverage in which we can put into context this election cycle compared to those dating back to 2000. we'll have lots and lots more to say this year. if you're not already on our distribution list i encourage you to get in touch and/or you can ascribe directly for website and/or our twitter feed. were also, this cycle also tracking you to the ads will have much more to say about that, too. we have three releases yet to come
set. he's a failure, the family income has gone down $4,000 in 3 1/2 years under obama compared to $2,000 under george w. in eight years. >> because of that family income, that's not a made up number, that's a government number. i think both of these guys should be looking for permanent middle class tax cuts. permanent middle class tax cuts so that take-home pay will go up. i'll give you the last word. >> i found myself strangely agreeing with your plan to cut the middle class and take away the deductions and keep tax rates for people who make a lot of money like you and i fairly high. i think that makes abundant good sense. but we're forgetting one thing. the biggest challenge may be even more than anything is our debt and our deficit. and i think with governor romney and paul ryan figured out was they can't give $5 trillion worth of tax cuts and still eat into the deficit, which i think is our biggest national problem. >> i think -- >> you're right. he might be able to do it. he might be able to do it if they did your plan. >> i'm telling you. you know, you were a good tax break gov
. so i think it's an opportunity for both candidates to talk about where they want this country to head, the vision they have. i think unfortunately, you're going to have president obama make a lot of excuses as to why, when he was on that stage four years ago, not much of what he ever said was going to happen occurred. >> you know, on the subject of winning and losing, chris christie, big supporter of mitt romney, has come out and said he expects a big win for governor romney in this debate. we talked to brad woodhouse yesterday from the democratic side. this is what he said about christie's comments. >> i think he set the bar high for mitt romney, and the bar should be high for mitt romney. i mean, he's gone through this campaign. we're five weeks out, soledad, and he's not said how he'd pay for his tax plan. we're five weeks out, he hasn't said how he'll shore up medicare or social security. to protect benefits instead of cutting them. the bar is really high for him. i think chris christie set it even a little higher. >> so, sean, how high is the bar for governor romney? >> i see the
debt added under the pelosi-obama air. i'm glad to know that i have more power than both of them put together and i'm responsible for this deficit spending. [cheers and applause] >> can you put that increase in the national debt just on barack obama and nancy pelosi alone? vilsack: could you repeat that? >> moderator: can you put that increase on the national debt on barack obama and nancy pelosi alone? vilsack: heavens no. congressman king is been in congress for 10 years and hasn't gotten the job done. and so i think the answer is really, it's really important to create jobs in this country and i'm really focused on doing that in this district. so, you know, i have a plan to make sure that i convince landowners to pass their land from one generation to the next. and help young farmers to get started. one of the most important things we could we doing right now, which congress hasn't done is passed a farm bill. it for thank you. that your time. our next question for panelists comes from -- [applause] -- our next question from our panel comes from dan breen, staff writer for the nort
: i think you raise a point that i think both towards the end of the last of ministration, the administration of george w. bush, and also president obama's cairo speech, major u.s. officials have acknowledged -- condi rice as a secretary of state gave it a promise beach that the nine states had supported authoritarian regimes and it ultimately would be on the wrong side of history and time for a breath of fresh air and the democratic revolution to move to the muslim world. president obama's speech in cairo early in his presidency attempted to do the same thing and breed some sense of liberalism into the muslim world. the difficulty, as you point out, is memories are long and people remember that for a long time in the interest of stability during the cold war, the authoritarian dictator maybe an sob but he is our s.o.b. -- and even after the cold war when it came to some arab regimes, we were willing to purchase strongmen who would at least have a reasonable relationship with israel. we can't be surprised, as you point out, that when these democratic openings occur, some o
research center has some bad news for both parties. just over half of likely voters are satisfied with the presidential choices this year compared with 72% of voters who were satisfied in 2008. meanwhile, despite some awkward campaign gaffes by president obama, the mainstream news media appear to be glossing over statements that might normally be considered fumbles. new york post saying today that thanks to the liberal media, the president doesn't need teflon. quote: you'd think the lockstep media would enjoy having a couple of new gaffes to feed on, but that would presume they have a role other than the one they've implicitly assigned to themselves which is to get obama reelected. let's talk about it with bill kristol, the editor of "the weekly standard" and a fox news contributor. one of the so-called gaffes that wasn't that he was pointing to there was when the president came out and said we've had bumps in the road to "60 minutes," referring to the deaths of our ambassador and the three other americans in libya. what do you think of the way the media has treated it, bill? >> w
are not campaign today. they're both taking time off for today only to work on their debate prep. of course, mitt romney is rehearsing with rob portman of ohio standing in for barack obama because really when you think about black neoprogressive democrat, who do you want to have stand in for that? rob portman. >> absolutely. >> john: this reminds me of the time that kniffin stood in for brown turned i feel good to i feel well. john is calling us from kansas city. good morning. you're on the "bill press show." >> caller: good morning. >> john: what a pleasure. >> caller: i'm in kansas city kansas. >> john: right on. i have family there. >> caller: great. your question is there any way romney can win? my answer is yes and how? it would be stealing the election. >> john: amen. >> caller: how did they win in florida in 2000. a list would include voter purging, rigging ballot box stuffing, voter fraud throwing out ballots which is why you should vote in person if at all possible. we must remember republicans are the kings
